In 2019, I completed my medicine degree at the University of Groningen. During my research internship I came into contact with functional neurological disorders. During this internship this disorder started to interest me more and more and I got the opportunity to do further research on them. My research is about acute functional symptoms that resemble an acute ischemic infarction of the brain. I am researching how we can best diagnose these symptoms and how people fare after they develop these symptoms.
